And, something not "Gargoyles" not "Spidey" and not "Young Justice" related.

I recently saw your Buzz Lightyear episode, "Star Crossed" for the first time. And something about the ending struck me. I had to re-watch it a few times, because on the surface, it didn't sit right with me... and I don't mean that as a criticism.

Did Romac die? His ship blew up on Planet Z. Team Lightyear was already off the planet. All of Zurg's cannons were trained on him. And then we cut away to Buzz's ship, Mira's psychic connection with him telling her that he was "gone."

Brainpod 57 then 'jacks an escape pod on Team Lightyear's ship, leaving a pre-recorded message from Lomac (that was obviously made before they landed on Planet Z) saying that he would some day win Mira back. But we never saw Romac again.

I realize this is a freelance script you wrote a decade ago, and this was still a light-hearted kids' show. But, considering how much I know you love to write on multiple levels, kids would think he was still alive. But I saw an impossible romance ending in a tragic death there.

Or am I just way off base?

My guess is your way off base. I haven't looked at my draft of the script, let alone the finished project in years. But I think what you're reading as a PRE-RECORDED message was perhaps not-so-prerecorded. But like I said, it's been years. I just don't remember with any surety.
